Acupunture Treatments

acupunctureThe ancient Chinese believed that there is a universal life energy called Chi present in every living creature. This energy is said to circulate throughout the body along specific pathways that are called meridians. As long as this energy flows freely throughout the meridians, health is maintained. But once the flow of energy is blocked, or “out of balance,” the system is disrupted and pain and illness can occur.

Acupuncture involves the usually painless insertion of very fine sterile needles at specific points in the body to “free up” the Chi energy and restore normal function. Side effects are minimal, and patients often report feelings of deep relaxation during treatment.

Studies have shown that, in addition to providing an overall feeling of well being, acupuncture may help treat or prevent many of the side effects of radiation treatment and chemotherapy.

Acupuncture treatments are available Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. To make an appointment call (541) 506-6998.

“All the fear I had at first went away soon because everyone was so positive and supportive. No one ever told me Don’t do this or Don’t do that. They never told me my life was going to be changing completely. They just encouraged me to go ahead and do the things that were important to me.”
